According to historical sources, this FT took part in a simulated tank battle training with 29 Italian produced Fiat 3000 tanks.

I generally avoid sub-tier 5, but the tier 4 was too hilarious to be skipped :trollface:

 

And looking at other people's opinions about the tier 6, which was honestly probably the only tank I was interested in the line, I might as well just stay at tier 4 for now and focus on other tank lines. Might still try the tier 5-6 at some point; maybe I'll like them, but dunno

If you want the Expert Italy badge you have to, else you'd have a hard time killing the T1.

Yeah, it's the HE slinger tank. Though, to use it in it's full potential, full HE spam isn't the way to go. HE is pretty trash if it doesnt penetrate. It gets pretty good AP/HEAT shells as well, so there is that.

That and they take hardly any time to grind through... Save the free xp for more useful tanks later

70mm of HE pen, that's gonna go through nearly every tier 4 and even most tier 5 tanks, 175 damage every 4 seconds that's TD levels of dpm :trollface:

dunno why people free XP to tier 6-7... I'd use it on the stock tier 7-9 what is wrong with y'all.

I free'd to the T5 simply because it was the first tank with identical crew as the Progetto, so I could just retrain that crew to the tank.

Tier 5 has the same gun as the tier 4 for its second option and it has the same crew layout as the rest of the line all the way to tier 10. Worth putting your crew xp on that one unless you don't mind re-training the radio operator from the tier 4 tank when you get around to moving them up.

This was pretty much what I did - played tiers 1-4 but didn't keep them, and then switch the crew in and out of the prog :)

Meh, that gun isn't even close as appealing at tier 5. Doesn't seem like its worth it to use over the top gun.

Oh, I don't know, there are quite a few tier 7s that don't have 70mm side armour. :)

 

But the top gun also looks interesting, the muzzle brake is ... er ... quite "unique". :unsure:
